New York City is a place that inspires and influences people to think bigger, do better and be more. Our City agencies—the NYPD, the FDNY, the New York City Taxi and Limousine Commission and others—are known and celebrated around the world. New York City is an iconic brand like no other: it is instantly recognizable and always in style.

The NYC & Company Licensing division is the exclusive worldwide licensing agent for the City of New York, responsible for developing, managing and protecting the City’s intellectual property.

All of the revenue generated through the division’s work benefits New York City and is used toward programs that further support, protect and promote the five boroughs and agencies of the City of New York.*

As the exclusive worldwide licensing agent for the City of New York, NYC & Company is your official source for developing licensed products that deliver the excitement, energy and dynamism of the City.
